In the Beginning, God said…

NEW ORLEANS (by Ferdie Werdie) —
In the beginning, God said: I play the trumpet.
In 1967, Louis Armstrong said: No kidding? You too?
In 2014, Ryan Seacrest said: I play the clarinet…
Go figure! Hahaha…

Here is Ferdie practicing for a gig this weekend on his INSTRUMENT OF THE LORD.

Ferdie Werdie

People often ask me, “Ferdie, what do you dream about? What comes up mostly in your dreams”? I tell them that often I dream about loved ones and relatives who have passed away. I often have vivid dreams where loved ones visit me in my dreams, and we have in-depth long conversations. I also have many, vivid, lively dreams about fine, lovely young ladies; some of whom I do not even know. I wake up truly feeling like I had just spent time with these ladies. I have even subsequently met some of these dream girls in real life. Unbelievable! They often look just like from my dreams. In fact, beginning over 30 years ago I used to dream about the very house that I live in now. I wrote a book in 2002 I HAVE A DREAM about living in this exact house. Who would have even imagined back then that I would now be living in this house. Out of the blue, I was offered to buy this house in 2007.

Ferdie Werdie is Editor

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — As the editor of the Delery Gazette I originate and write my stories at I am thinking every day about stories that my readers will find interesting. Click the button below in the right, bottom corner to enlarge my newsfeed to read:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is turning 30 years-old soon; and he is deciding on changes with Facebook that will also show growth similar to his maturity.

Also, now with spring having sprung, I plan to write some lovely stories about fun in the sun.

Yes! Fun in the sun.

Yes! Fun in the sun.

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Is New Orleans Number 1? I studied the tweet below, and clicked to the story because it caught my interest.

Nicole Kidman Among Best

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Looking for Nicole Kidman’s latest movie. I read that her movies have earned more than $3 billion in her career. I truly hope that she wins an Academy Award for her latest releasing film Grace of Monaco which opens in 2014. I flipped through the list of her movies Kidman Movies Filmography and came to realize that Nicole is a “beast” in the movie industry. Her work is marvelous. I think (and hope) that her performance in Grace of Monaco will again show the world that she is at the top of the list.

Speaking of movies, I need to once again make another push for one of my books to be picked up as a movie. In fact, I have been writing and working on publishing a screenplay for one of my books. I have had some nibbles and inquiries about doing a movie about one of my books. How do they say? ..I have to put my shoulder to the grind in order to step up to the next level.

Have you ever wondered why crocodiles have existed on earth for so many millions of years? Scientists believe that their intelligence and keen sense of survival have paved the path for crocodiles to be one of the longest living species on earth.

#Peggy’s Painting

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Below is a painting in the developmental stage being created by my sister, #Peggy, which she is posting as she goes. I thought that it might be interesting for some of my readers to also see it as it develops. I have been planning to buy an easel also for me, myself and I for some time now.

Here is what Peggy said recently:

In other art news, the Arabian State of Qatar recently purchased a Paul Cézanne painting, The Card Players, for more than $250 million. “The deal, in a single stroke, sets the highest price ever paid for a work of art and upends the modern art market,” said Vanity Fair. This sale more than doubles the previous record paid for a work of art.

Bought for $250M by Arabian State of Qatar.

By the way, on my way home just now I almost stopped at one of my favorite stops for that good ol’, N’Awlins home-style eating; but I opted for a place closer along my route. Also, I am somewhat on the Master Cleanse fast for a while. So, I thought that all the bread and meat that I usually eat at Parkway should wait for another day.

Time To Hit The #PanicButton

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — Is that a #PanicButton or is it THE BIG ONE? Too funny. What is that red button? I bought a toy red panic button years ago which gave off the sound of a real emergency alarm when you pressed it. I pressed it every time my girl friend acted “stupid” :). One day I came home and it was GONE! I knew that she threw it away. It had TOTALLY DISAPPEARED. I loved my panic button so much. Now, she has totally disappeared too 🙂 :). Why? Why, oh why did she leave me? BooHoo!

Red Button

I have tried several times since I lost my panic button to buy another toy panic button like the one I had. Cannot find one! Maybe I can Google search on the Internet to see if anyone still makes a nice toy panic button like that one with such a great emergency alarm like that. I loved it!! I could aggravate the hell out of people with it. Plus, whenever I was totally stressed out, I would press my panic button and it would help out every time because it made me laugh since the alarm sounded so real.
